charges of ff99SB (Hornak et al.) are these from ff99 (Amber99, Wang
et al.)/Amber98/Amber96 and Amber94 (Cornell et al.)

charges of ff03 are derive using a different approach to ff94.

Consequently, you have two different FF for proteins in the Amber 10
distribution. You will have to choose between one of these two.
